and address issues. president obama heads to las vegas to unveil his own immigration reform plan. he promised the reform in his 2008 but failed to deliver it in his first term. >> cenk: the reason why he failed to deliver it, of course, the republicans opposed him. the republicans seem a little more open to reform now. let me show you why. 71% of latinos voted for president obama. only 27% voted for governor romney. all of a sudden the republicans are thinking, maybe the latinos are not so bad. interesting. i'm sure that they, of course, vote based on principle, though. let me show you what is in the proposal. four major goals, providing a means for citizenship to immigrants who are already here. number two coming out with an employment verification system to make sure employers do not hire those people who are in the country illegally. number three letting in more low-skill workers and allowing employers to hire immigrants if they can show they couldn't recruit an u.s. citizen with the same skills. that's for corporate america. i'll explain that in a little bit. and number four, awarding gre

? is this a win for president obama? does this become next to probably health care reform one of his lasting legacies? >> yes however i think it is a net neutral for both parties at the end of the day. the white house will claim it as they should because they are driving the conversation. republicans are also going to claim credit as they should because they are going to say we got this through the house and senate. >> i guess we could aargue that if republicans and democrats aren't talking about impgration reform in a year that is a win for the gop, as well. >> i love talking about politics as much as the next guy. on this issue this is a win for the country. you cannot have 13 million people in the shadows and think that is good for the future of the country. too many young people worried about the future. that is not the way a country needs to be run. in terms of the political consequences or the benefits, both sides i think can make the argument that they benefit. at the end of the day the country will benefit from this. >> good to see both of you. thanks so much. >> thank you. >>> the d
